General Conference 2012 Round-up

General Conference 2012 ended one week ago today. In the past week, I’ve read a number of post-conference reflections. I thought I’d list several of them here. These aren’t necessarily the best, or only ones, but they are some of the best ones I’ve read.

Run Aground at Tampa Bay: A Reflection on the 2012 General Conference (Bishop Timothy Whitaker)

Several by Bishop Michael Coyner: Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Right, No Guarantees, Finding Their Voice, It Was Never About Structure, and Good Results from General Conference.

All of these wrap-ups and reflections were written by people who attended General Conference 2012. I wasn’t there, but followed it as closely as I could from a distance. So, while I’m rounding up some articles, here are links to my General Conference-related posts …
